michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc
of obama's little sister. i am michelle obama's older brother. any 7-footers out there come give me a call. >> craig and i come from different states. we have had different upbringings. as you can see, we have different perspectives on the world. >> but no matter how different winning seem, we share a set of values are -- how different we may seem, we share is set of values, values that are as important in chicago as they are in honolulu. a willingness to work hard, a commitment to education, and looking out for each other. they are the values of how barack and michele have lived their lives, raise their nieces, and lead this country as president and first lady of the united states. [applause] >> four years ago, at this convention, i spoke with you all about how barack and i did not grow up with much in the wake of wealth. but we were blessed with a mother who taught us that education is the surest path from limited means to limitless opportunity. she inspired me to become a teacher and she inspired barack's deep commitment to giving all our young people the opportunity is our education ga
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
michelle obama starting off tonight. bill clinton joe biden, john kerry and of course, tomorrow night and then president obama the featured speaker the acceptance speech at the bank of america stadium on thursday evening. about half a mile from here. it is all happening here in charlotte. that's why we're here. it is good to have you with us. where you happen to be in this great land of ours. 1-866-55-press is our toll free number. use that to give us a call and chime in on what you think about what you've heard leading up to the convention. still talking about all of the lies we heard from tampa. paul ryan still trying to make excuses. he's lying about how fast he can run a marathon. he will lie about anything. he will lie about his own age probably. still a lot of afterthought about last week in tampa and a lot of excitement about this week here in charlotte. 1-866-55-press. now let's see how it's going to work here. peter ogborn in charlotte with me, sitting on my right. your left i guess. hello. >> n
is this playing in the hall as opposed to on tv. even what blitzer said about michelle obama not just a home run, but a grand slam. i don't know what this is. the ball is gone. it is on the mars rover now. >> i think bill clinton did a couple of important things, he united the hilary and obama base for this election in 2016 -- 2012 lord -- 2016. >> stephanie: right. >> he energized the yes, we can people too. i had a woman on twitter say warren i'm a white democratic woman 45 years old after hearing michelle obama and president clinton, we are driving to charlotte to be a part of the celebration today. >> stephanie: oh, yeah. you just wanted to be a part of it. and it was all facts. it -- nobody lays out a case like bill clinton. >> what was the line of the speech for you? >> stephanie: well there were so many arithmetic. and i think -- that he very clearly said i did not inherit -- i did not inherit this mes and barack obama did. >> i think the line of the speech of was like one former president said, there they go again. >> stephanie: yeah. >> he went off script and whe
and there is no surprised it has washed up on both ends. right now, an romney and michelle obama could be the most popular folks. but this happens in campaigns. that happens because of nature of negative attacks back-and-forth. >>neil: but if ann romney who -- if mitt romney is tries, tentatively, and the president is dropping. >>guest: this is what is strike, president obama, we often hear in washington, that president obama has this wonderful personal popularity with the american people, and that will overcome negative ratings and the economy, and the abc-washington post poll, he is underwater and this is not a job approval question. this was the question, do you like this guy or don't you like this guy? now, more americans say they do thought like the president. that is a fundamental change for an administration that has been able to count for four years on the personal likability of president obama even when people did not approve of the work he was doing so i think it is a big deal. >>neil: artur davis great do have you, thank you very much. >> some big speeches but there is one, in particular, tonig
. michelle obama did a great job last night for president. tomorrow night it's up to the president of the united states to do a great job for himself. president obama certainly has some hard acts to follow when he speaks to this convention tomorrow night. can he live up to the speeches given by his wife, the former president bill clinton? stay with us. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ] if you're eligible for medicare, you may know it only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. call now and find out about an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, it helps pick up some of what medicare doesn't pay. and could save you thousands in out-of-pocket costs. to me, relationships matter. i've been with my doctor for 12 years. now i know i'll be able to stick with him.

will be capped off by michele obama. david walker joins because he the incident last week in tampa. former u.s. general. >> we are in a 70 trillion-dollar hole. we have unfunded pensions and health care. unfunded social security, unfunded medicare. the range of other commitments and contingencies. it is over $70 trillion. neil: which party has the better plan to do that? >> it will be interesting to see how barack obama embraces simpson-bowles or that he hasn't yet, but if he does, that could be a game changer. there is one serious problem in one moderate problem. the series problem is that if you don't effectively deal with health care costs, you don't solve the problem. neil: who better than kathleen sebelius to help you. >> he is a happy beneficiary to bring happy quality health care to every senior citizen. president obama is building on that legacy. by bringing quality and secure health care to every american. obamacare is a badge of honor. because no matter who you are, what stage of life you are in, this law is a good thing. first, if you already have insurance that you like, you can
to expectations. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
with people. they know men and women like michelle obama. they know men like barack obama. and they are not falling for it and they are the neadrethals. they are wondering, what cave did you come out of? >> ana marie, is this due to desperation that they are going back to the old dirty tricks and code words because they are losing and they've become desperate? >> i think so, al. i have to say, i want to be totally fair. people said some really nasty things about george bush when he was in office. there are pretty awful character turs of him. there's one significant thing, it did not have the racialress nans of him and that's a huge thing. here's one thing that i think they have in common. those things didn't really work. those slurs against george bush did not really work with the mass amount of people and i do not think that these things are working in part because we have grown as a country. we elected barack obama. that doesn't mean that we've seen the end of racism but it does mean that people my age, people a little younger than me don't have that same resonance becau
. michele obama. i would agree with that. she is given the best speech. i would definitely agree with that. but there was one dude, the proper -- the prompter went out. i think he gets the sympathy vote, but i digress. we have presented joining us now, democratic representative from the fines to the minnesota. i was talking about how each state, it is a weird thing. i mean that in the highest regard. strong republican, strong democratic areas. jesse ventura. >> absolutely. neil: the bull's eye tight. that is usually not an easy democratic pickup, but the usual democratic pickup. should the president be worried? >> denise to be worry everywhere. as a matter of turnout. you have to get the people out. anybody who goes sicily on minnesota is making a big mistake. neil: i agree with that. the fact that republicans are contemplating some much, is that the expression? they're optimistic. michigan, michigan of all places represented with its ticket to the republican ticket opposing the bailout. competitive. and i'm wondering. wisconsin, ohio, you could be looking at it possibly. >> get togeth
. the convention starts tuesday. we will hear from first lady michelle obama. on wednesday, elizabeth warren will appear. and former president bill clinton. and, of course, the president and vice president on thursday. let's take a look at the floor here for a moment. >> in a report from fox news, the stage alone at last week's republican convention cost $20 million. the democrats have spent $7 million here at the time warner cable arena where the speakers are going to be surrounded on three sides by the audience. also different from the republican production, the democratic convention has multiple official sites. we'll be taking you to the time warner cable arena and the bank of america stadium. take a look outside of the stadium. activists are planning for bigger protests here than we saw during the republican convention in tampa. as reuters reports, the protests that were planned for the republican convention never really materialized, partly because of tropical storm isaac. but activists say they expect a stronger showing in charlotte. let's listen in. >> our goal is to unite groups from
obama and why he should be given another shot at this. michele obama presented a very personal story. we are going to talk to a congressman who had a story more than 24 hours ago. peter barnes on the floor of the democratic national convention. reporter: neil, one of the goals of the obama campaign is to try to reach across generations and we are doing that right here on the north carolina delegation. a few seats down from me, an older delegate wearing what looks to be an original top hat for john f. kennedy, caroline kennedy's uncle. the campaign, of course, trying to appeal to seniors as well as younger voters and middle-aged voters across all the ages. big decisions over the next few years. he is going to say that he wants more time and needs more time. the truth is it will take more than a few years for us to solve challenges that have built up over decades. including creating another million manufacturing jobs by 2016. neil: since it took a while to turn this ship around, you will hear a lot of references to do a job come back up 20 months. a lot of this will go into about a year af
sense to marry michelle obama. [cheers and applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. [applause] >> "washington journal" contines. ues. host: a live picture of the time warner cable the arena. our program will begin at 3:00 eastern time from the floor of the convention hall. president obama and vice president biden will accept their parties' nominations tonight. gavel-to-gavel coverage on c- span. meanwhile, we're joined by david wagner, a charlotte anchor, wcnc tv. what do you think about having the convention in your home town? guest: this is great. i think this is something that some never expected. this is the biggest convention that charlotte has ever posted. some people really did not know what to expect. i still think a lot of folks from the charlotte area it may have not had the chance to get down here and experience this. some were a little bit scared away that perhaps traffic would be so bad and businesses would be shut down, and to be honest, after having, fro
tomorrow with first lady michelle obama the headliner and the keynote address from san antonio mayor julio castro. this week, democrats will try to highlight what they consider president obama's first-term successes, but there is this nagging question they're struggling to answer -- are you better off today than you were four years ago? cnn's dana bash joins me right now. seems like just yesterday we were on the floor of the republican convention in tampa. >> it does. wasn't it yesterday? speaking of yesterday, let's go back many yesterdays ago to four years ago, and that is really what, as you mentioned, the republicans have been pressing for democrats, and it is the key question for democrats to answer -- are you better off? obama officials have been kind of -- it's been tough for them to answer the question, but one democrat who's usually pretty good at staying on message went off message a little bit, and that is martin o'malley, the governor of maryland, who also is the head of the democratic governors association. listen to what he said. >> can you honestly say that people are better
it the walkthrough. they get to practice a bit on the the teleprompter. you see that to the side of michelle obama. reading off of a teleprompter is an unnatural act. it's not easy to do. you have to move your head back and forth and keep following along and engage the audience at the same time, which is not easy, and engage the television audience. she's getting applause right now. >> and she's practicing a little bit. as important as the reception she gets for the 20,000 or 25,000 delegates and guests inside the arena, what's sho much more important is the reception sh gets from the 40 or 50 million viewers out there, many of them still undecided. >> and i think the bar is set pretty high for her. she now has this many years later quite a bit of public speaking experience. she tends to do pretty well, i think you'll agree, when she's speaking at events. large events, small events. thinks going to be one of the speeches most anticipated throughout this entire week. >> and ann romney gave a good speech in tampa. >> both will reach out to the all important women voters. president obama has a dozen
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to

of my life, our next first lady, michelle obama. [cheers and applause] and to malia and sasha. i love you so much and i am so proud of you. [cheers and applause] four years ago i stood before you and told you my story, that the brief union of a young man from kenya and a young woman from kansas who weren't well off, weren't well known, but shared a belief that in america their son could achieve whatever he put his mind to. it is that promise that's always set this country apart, that through hard work and sacrifice each of us can pursue our individual dreams but still come together as one american family tone sure that the next generation can pursue their dreams as well. that's why i stand here tonight, because for 232 years, at each moment when that promise was in jeopardy, ordinary men and women, students and soldiers, farmers and teachers, nurses and janitors, found the courage to keep it alive. we meet at one of those defining moments, a moment when our nation is at war, our economy is in turmoil, and the american promise has been threatened once more. tonight more americans are o
